You Are Welcome Here

The University of Dayton is among 57 colleges and universities nationwide to join the #YouAreWelcomeHere national scholarship program, pledging to create scholarships for international students to study in the U.S.

“The University of Dayton is proud to help launch this scholarship program as part of our commitment to the common good,” said Christine DeLisio Kremer, director of international and graduate admission. “International students are important to our diverse and inclusive learning environment. As a university founded by Marianist immigrants from France, we hope this scholarship will help more students see their path to a University of Dayton degree.”

Beginning in fall 2019, each participating institution will offer two annual, renewable scholarships that cover at least half of the recipients’ tuition. The scholarship expands the mission of the social media campaign, which was created by Temple University in November 2016 to respond to apprehension by some international students about studying in the U.S.

“The #YouAreWelcomeHere scholarship meets an essential challenge in the effort to support international and refugee students, foster intercultural understanding and develop future leaders,” said Allan E. Goodman, president of the Institute of International Education, which supports the scholarship.

Information on who qualifies, how to apply and the application deadline is available on the University of Dayton’s website.
